Course Description

Overview

CDCS is the advance level for Data Center Professionals and this 3-day course will further increase attendees to a level being a compatible sparring partner with suppliers and they will be able to verify offers provided by vendors for correctness, effectiveness and efficiency. CDCS is the second training in the EPI Design and Build training track under the EPI Data Center Training Framework. Participants must hold a valid CDCP certificate in order to be able to register for the CDCS class. CDCS itself is a pre-requisite for persons wishing to achieve the CDCE status.
